Rachel has lived in Portland for seventeen years, and has grown attached to this city and its unique charm. Portland is her home, and even with her slight southern twang, no one could ever doubt she is a Portlander through and through. She has insider knowledge of the Portland market through her many years of work in Portland schools and government (in all the neighborhoods, suburbs, schools, and services). When not helping clients, or elevating her own historic Portland home, Rachel loves her two big dogs, gardening, camping, entertaining, all things vintage, festivals, and music.
